This is really good, tasty and easy :) Tastes like you made homemade noodles too.. The family loves it.


  1. Put your whole chicken in a dutch oven with 4 chicken bouillion cubes and cover with enough water to cover the chicken and cook until tender, usually an hour.
  2. Take the chicken out and cut up.
  3. Meanwhile add your 2 packages of rheames egg noodles in the pot and add 4 more chicken bouillion cubes.
  4. Add chicken and stir frequently for around 45 minutes -- Enjoy!

This is certainly heartland home cooking. DD (age 15) has wanted to learn to make chicken and noodles so I started her with this basic recipe. She was quite proud of her accomplishment and her dad and brothers gobbled it up! We might add a quartered onion, a carrot and a stalk of celery to the pot while the chicken cooks - to lend their flavor but to be discarded with the chicken carcass - but it's certainly yummy as written! Delicious and convenient - thanks Faith58.

This was a good dish but next time I will add some seasonings and carrots. I did add peas this time. I liked how the noodles cooked in the chicken broth. I also liked the simplicity of this recipe. It's also inexpensive to make if you get the chicken on sale. Thanks faith58!
